These instructions show how to update the Bluetooth 4.0 radio firmware on all Bluetooth-enabled Stages Indoor Cycling consoles. This update process differs from the firmware update process used to update the console software via USB drive, as it is an update to the Bluetooth chip inside the console, rather than the console firmware itself. 


- Bluetooth-enabled Stages IC Console (must be installed on a bike and paired to a Stages Power Meter)

- A compatible iOS or Android mobile device running the Stages Power app

- An internet connection via mobile network or WiFi

Before beginning the update, please check the iTunes or Google Play store to download and install the latest version of the StagesPower app.
